Ambience Scores are transcriptions into language of the ordinarily unheard sounds of place. From this alphabetically rendered sound composition, places could then be performed as voice. Think Kurt Schwitters Ursonate meets field recordings. The originating moments they capture are ephemeral and unrepeatable; transcription errors are inevitable, but every attempt at the impossible task is made.
